As a Chemist, Educator, and Naturalista, Rhonda Marshall brings a truly unique perspective to the beauty industry. Rhonda saw a clear consumer need and personal passion to take better care of her naturally curly hair. Her curls were something she was proud of and she felt distinguished her personality. After years of using relaxers and other chemical laden products, and high heat styling methods that damaged her hair to modify her natural curl pattern, she felt there had to be a better way. While at Helene Curtis (now Unilever) Rhonda worked on projects developing Suave Shampoos and Conditioners as well as the first Clear Stick for (Degree) Antiperspirant/Deodorant. After earning a Masters Degree in Education, she has also worked as a Certified Educator teaching Chemistry and Science at the Secondary level. Finally, after transitioning away from chemically processed hair in 2001, Rhonda eventually developed her own hair products incorporating natural ingredients that were especially effective for naturally curly hair textures. With this experience not only as a Chemist but also as a customer, Rhonda developed what would eventually become the Inahsi Naturals product line. Inahsi Naturals products have been used by award winning celebrity stylists behind the scenes for a number of shows including ABC’s ‘Black●ish, The CW’s Riverdale, and the film starring Eddie Murphy, Coming 2 America.
